    Lil B made meme history when he tried out for the Golden State Warriors' D-League team in Santa Cruz a few years back. Unfortunately, he didn't make the cut, but it hasn't stopped him from giving up on his dreams of living the Hoop Life. Today, the Delaware 87ers (the 76ers' D-League team) invited the Based God to their try-outs. Naturally, the enthusiastic rapper took them up on the offer almost immediately, confirming he had spoken to the head office for the team.

    Especially after Lil B dominated the conversation during the NBA Playoffs this year, it's been clear that the Bay Area cult hero has influence that extends far beyond the music world. He's lectured at universities across the country, written his own book and remained outspoken on issues of race, class and discrimination throughout his career. Yesterday, CNN got him to explain his thoughts on the upcoming presidential election.

    As summer nears its end, we witnessed a cool-off of sorts before we get albums from Dr. Dre, The Weeknd, Travi$ Scott, Mac Miller and (hopefully) Kid Cudi. Still, there was plenty to be excited about this past week, what with CyHi dissing everyone on G.O.O.D. Music, new tapes from Curren$y and Lil B/Chance The Rapper and some dope, unexpected Chief Keef tracks.  Here's what was happening on Twitter this week.

    Chance The Rapper and Lil B's collection of freestyles was released two days ago, for free. Chalk-full of positive moments from both MCs, the tracks are more proof that these are two role models hip hop could definitely use. Chance took to Facebook to release the project, saying, "It's called ‪#‎Free‬ and yes it's real. Conceived from magic, love, acid and based. We made this the moment we met."

    A couple weeks ago, news surfaced that Chance The Rapper and Lil B were allegedly doing a joint album together. While many fans were unsure on the accuracy of this story or more so stunned about it, Chance decided to make it official tonight and confirm the project on Bootleg Kev’s radio show.

    Trolling is an art form as much as rapping, and some rappers are better at it than others. It has nothing to do with rapping proficiency. When Meek Mill tweeted out a fake Drake diss track last night, he exposed himself as someone for whom trolling does not come naturally. The best trolls go big or go home. In the words of Bunk Moreland, "The bigger the lie, the more they believe."

    Last year, we examined the ever-changing definition of "beef" in hip hop, observing how inter-artist disputes have increasingly unfolded online and perhaps become more petty since the term was coined in the '90s. That's held true in 2015, as we've seen more than a few Twitter or Instagram-based disputes play out in the year's first six months.

    Kendrick Lamar is not the type of dude to be chilling on Twitter shooting the shit -- he's tweeted 11 times in the last seven weeks -- so it's a bit of a surprise whenever he actually say something. Today he took the time to give a shoutout to the two artists he deems the most influential: Lil B and Lil Wayne.  "Thank you BasedGod," he wrote. "Teaching us all how to swagg in videos. You and Wayne most influential. Thank you BasedGod."

    Vince Staples sat down with HNHH recently for a insightful and comprehensive interview covering his upcoming album Summertime '06 from every conceivable angle. That said, Vince's recent interview with XXL had a couple humorous tidbits of its own... he had this to say when asked about the cultural impact of Vans when he was younger (when Vince had just turned 13 years old in summer '06):

    Advancements of the infinite tool that is the Internet have made collaborating among musicians exponentially easier. Gone are the days where it was nearly impossible to create music without musicians being in the same studio at the same time. Now artists and producers are able to collaborate despite being in different parts of the country, or even across the globe. One can simply email over a verse or an instrumental that can be worked with, and tweaked, into a musical masterpiece. This makes any collaboration possible and has resulted in some incredible creations recently.

    Never before has a rapper been as inextricably linked to the NBA playoffs as Lil B has been in 2015. Dishing out warnings, curses and pardons like he's a 14th century pope, the Based God's been central to the conversation around the games, interacting with rappers on Twitter, attending games to strengthen his magic and even popping up on ESPN to clarify just who's on his shit list.

    Based God was right -- this was the statement Frank Ocean chose to share before opening up about his sexuality on Tumblr back in 2012. Obviously, Lil B has inspired the reclusive singer, and thus it makes sense that the Oakland rapper will be featured in his new magazine, Boys Don't Cry.

    Throughout his career, Lil B has done nothing but give, whether it be free music, positive advice, or follows on Twitter, so it saddens us to hear that he's had $10,000 in cash taken from him. The Based God has accused the staff of Red Lion Hotel in Oakland of taking money from his room while he was out today.
